A long time coming

So I started my leaf tie cardigan last year. I was hopping to wear it while we were in Las Vegas. That didn't happen for either of the trips. I finally got around to finishing it completely.

PATTERN: Leaf Tie Cardigan, "Fitted Knits"
YARN: Deddie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK, Celery
NEEDLES: US6 Knit Picks Options
MODIFICATIONS: -Longer, -2x2 Rib, -No leaf lie.
I even wore it to work this week. Wow it was a week at work too, we had a major outbreak which needed instant results. Well instant doesn't exist is my line of work. I spent 13.5 hours at work on Thursday.

I ordered some Ultra Alpaca from the big WEBS sale.

My weakness, Lion Brand, shows up again. I was in Nashville at a Michaels and there it was and I needed yarn for a project. I know you don't want to hear it.

FINALLY, I said give me a week and I'd show you some results.

Its very small but very cute, and it only took an hour or so to whip up. You make your own pattern for this project so I think I'll make a larger one next. Up next PILLOWS!
